Excellent series
24 May 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I have just started watching this and I so far i am extremely impressed.

Although i was fairly young, I was a fan of Prisoner back in the days when it was on and i have been looking forward to this show ever since i heard there was a re-make.

I don't want to give too much away regarding the plot but basically it has a similar plot to the original format but there are a few twists that you wont be expecting - especially with casting.

Its superbly acted and after 15 minutes into it you wont want to switch off. The girls in the show are brilliant. There is plenty of drama, action and some occasional black comedy.

Don't judge the show on the reviews and past experiences alone, watch it and make your own decision. If you haven't seen the old shows of Prisoner you wont be missing out on anything at all.

Well done and i look forward to more episodes. This will definitely be winning a few awards. Keep up the good work Foxtel.
